I have been working at BJ's Restaurants full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Salary + Bonus is great, as well as health benefits, 401K, etc. GM's can top 100K including bonus if they stick around long enough. Lots of corporate structure to support and guide you, you always know exactly what is expected of you.

Cons

If you have a GM that is hard to communicate with it can make it difficult to get certain days off or have a positive work environment. BJ's also expects a lot of work hours from managers, and holidays are blacked out for vacation, so you'll never get to see your family during those important times of the year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to have a rotation system so that you can earn your way to eventually taking time off during Christmas/Thanksgiving.
